While thats ideal, this defence is easily good enough to win a cup with..on paper.
And that's the problem. The coaches aren't getting anywhere close to enough out of the defence they have
Garrison and Tanev has been good, but Garrison isn't being fully utilized. Edler, Bieksa, Hamhuis, Ballard are flat out underperforming/being misused.
The goaltenders are underperforming now too. I can understand this team not scoring goals at the moment with the lack of talent upfront, but this team is giving up way too many goals for the personnel they have. That is 100% on the coaching staff, and a big reason why its time for a change.
